Granica Named a 2023 Gartner® Cool Vendor

Apr 02, 2024

The Google Cloud Next 2024 Sessions We Will be Attending

This is going to be one of the most exciting times to be at Google Cloud Next. Machine Learning and Generative AI have quickly become a high priority for many organizations, and there will be a lot to digest and learn in this content-packed conference. 

At Granica, we believe that for AI to be truly useful it has to be trusted, and trusted AI begins with data privacy to ensure that data is dafe for use in model training and fine tuning, RAG, or directly in prompts. Side note - we will be showing off our data privacy capabilities on the show floor, you can find us at Booth # 1403 and learn more here.

Being such big fans of building trust, impact, and efficiency into AI, our team has curated the best sessions to attend. We think these are going to be great sessions for AI/ML teams (and their leaders) as well, so if that's you, we highly recommend adding them to your agenda. Head to your Cloud Next agenda portal where you can search for each of the sessions by code (e.g. “SEC207”).
